Did you know that you are being hunted? That’s right. You are being pursued.
God is pursuing you and desires to have a personal relationship with you on the practical level of your everyday experiences.
Most sportsmen are wandering through life like a hunter lost in the woods without a compass. Even though the outdoorsman has experienced the magnificence of God’s creative handiwork in the great outdoors, belief in His personal love and concern for each individual requires a certain measure of faith. Good works, high morals, and church attendance can never replace God’s perfect plan of restoring back to man the fellowship that was long ago broken by sin.
The biblical definition of sin is an archery term used to describe the flight of an arrow. When an arrow misses the mark it is said to have sinned. The mark or target for the ideal life has been set by Jesus Christ who is the only human being who never committed sin. Sin or disobedience toward God is bound up in the heart of every person on the face of the globe. “All have sinned and come short of God’s Glory.” (Romans 3:23).
The “Good News” for man is found in Romans 10:13, which states that “All that call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved!”
The Bible states that, “your adversary, the devil, is walking around like a roaring lion seeking someone whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Like the camouflage of a skillful hunter the devil conceals himself, and by deceit tries to keep you from God. Man cannot save himself.
The ultimate experience in the great outdoors, and life itself, is to receive the gift of eternal life that God makes freely available to all. Read through the following information then consider the fact that today could be the first day of a new life of adventure as you begin to walk with Him in a new relationship of trust and everyday practical experience!
The Gift of Eternal Life
What must I do to receive the Gift of Eternal Life?
“I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” (John 3:3)
- Acknowledge “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
- Repent “…But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” (Luke 13:3) “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out…” (Acts 3:19)
- Confess “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
(1 John 1:9) “That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
- Forsake “Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord…for he will freely pardon.” (Isaiah 55:7)
- Believe “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
- Receive “He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him to those who believed in hiss name, he gave the right to become children of God.”
Our response is to receive Jesus. “Dear God, I believe that your son died for my sins and ask your forgiveness. I receive Jesus Christ now as my personal Savior and invite Him to be the Lord of my life from this day forward. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
